Forum Formatting

The forums use a simple syntax that is also used on the trac wiki. Here's a quick overview about the syntax you can use:

Hyperlinks are automatically created for URLs.

Example:

 http://getpopfile.org/

Display:

http://getpopfile.org/

Links can be given a more descriptive title by writing the link followed by a space and a title and all this inside square brackets. If the descriptive title is omitted, then the explicit prefix is discarded, unless the link is an external link.

Example:

 [http://getpopfile.org/ POPFile homepage]

Display:

POPFile homepage

Font Styles

The Trac wiki supports the following font styles:

 * '''bold'''
 * ''italic''
 * {{{monospace}}} or `monospace`

Display:

  • bold
  • italic
  • monospace or monospace

Preformatted Text

Blocks containing preformatted text are suitable for source code and log file snippets. Use three curly braces wrapped around the text to define a block that should be displayed preformatted. The curly braces need to be on a separate line. Example:

 {{{
  def HelloWorld():
      print "Hello World"
 }}}

Display:

 def HelloWorld():
     print "Hello World"

Perl:

{{{
#!perl
my ($test) = 0;
if ($test > 0) {
    print "hello";
}
}}}
my ($test) = 0;
if ($test > 0) {
    print "hello";
}
